WHAT TO DO AFTER A DOG BITE INJURY IN ARVIN
A dog bite can become infected if it’s not treated properly. A Bakersfield or Arvin animal attack attorney would advise you to seek medical attention right away in the case of severe bites and report the incident to the local authorities immediately. You shouldn’t have to pay out-of-pocket expenses for any medical bills related to the attack. If the owner refuses to accept responsibility, having an Arvin dog attack lawyer on your side will improve your case.
After the attack, ask for the owner’s information such as name, home address, phone number and insurance. You should also obtain information and statements from any witnesses in the area. If the owner isn’t available, it’s important to call the local animal control or the police and have the dog captured and checked for rabies. Your personal Arvin animal attack attorney would also advise you to take pictures of the dog, the bite area and the location of the incident.
